Video: BlueTec explained in 1 minute
Seems like the diesel craze is actually starting to catch on. And why shouldn't it? We've finally got the new clean diesel fuel. Mercedes just announced they'd launch three new diesel-powered vehicles. And DaimlerChrysler, BMW and Volkswagen said they'd team up on BlueTec. Wait, there it is again. We've been throwing the phrase "BlueTec" around a lot in the last few months. You probably already know that reduces nitrogen oxides by up to 80 percent, but how? Where does the ammonia come into play? And what is this AdBlue stuff, anyway?
For those of you who prefer diagrams and moving images, here's a short video we were lucky enough to stumble upon over at YouTube. It seems to have been created by Mercedes, but is distributed by United Pictures TV, the free TV network.
